About this Event
Quench Arts is launching a monthly, face-to-face, music leader peer support network. This is for music leaders and teachers and will provide a supportive space for people to trial new activities, discuss ideas and challenges and gain tips and inspiration from others with a chance to network. You can be an experienced practitioner or just starting your career. All welcome to attend!
These sessions will be facilitated by James Stanley. James originally trained through Sound It Out’s New Horizons programme and, since then, has progressed to be a freelance musician in high demand, working with Mac Makes Music, The Hive, Base Studios, Makes Some Noise and The SongLab on participatory music projects with young people in challenging circumstances. James is a multi-instrumentalist, avid songwriter and also highly skilled in music technology, regularly writing for film and media. He is currently a lead artist on Quench Arts’ Wavelength project for young people with mental health conditions & Musical Connections, for vulnerable adults. He regularly delivers training sessions for Quench Arts. James is a Bronze/Silver/Gold Arts Award Advisor and has been trained in Mental Health First Aid and Autism Awareness.
An element of each session will focus on a topic each month, with suggestions from the group welcome for future sessions. James will prepare some activities and discussion starters for each session but will open the floor to everyone attending to contribute their own ideas and opinions. He will also offer some space for people to trial a practical activity of their own if they want to (please let us know in advance if you'd like to have some time set aside for a short practical activity).
Each session costs £5 and includes refreshments.
